Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

But you haven't read the book.

Nope. Only watched the one hour video review.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

I have no knowledge of the details of Klein's book, but I still have to ask you:

You have of course, rigorously researched and documented the track record of misinformation, statistical manipulation and general lack of respect for honest inquiry that Timbro (and particularly Norberg) is renowned for?

I am quite aware of Norbergs mishandling of statistics in his book In defence of world capitalism, but mostly this seemed to be not due to dishonesty but due to a mix of ineptitude and being based on data which later was revised. (Reading that book, and Nozicks Anarchy, State, Utopia made me a neoliberal, until I got to my senses a few years later)

Still, the things brought forth in that review shows that Klein is at least ten times worse than Timbro/Norberg.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
